New Year, New You

New Years is one time of the year when anything goes from a fashion standpoint. You can wear whatever you want and have limited stares as there are no boundaries. Everyone is excited, it's time to be out, to express yourself, to welcome new beginnings and on this evening you let your fashion walls come down as you countdown to the new year. The dress I sported on this monumental evening was from The Salvation Army on Little River Turnpike in Northern Virginia. We visited the Salvation Army while on the DC Thrift and Boast Tour in which I found a lot of great things. 

The Lila Color Block Sheath dress retailed for around $39.00 by Alloy Apparel, an online retailer of moderately priced fashion for all. The cost at the Salvation Army was $12.99, for me that is pretty steep, but, I liked the fit and figured I would definitely make use of it. I did gold accessories as the dress was kind of plain; statement necklace from Nordstrom, Vince Camuto gold suede hoops and a gold bracelet. I think the gold accessories made the dress pop and was a nice touch to the simple yet chic look. Additionally, I completed the look with black opaque tights and Calvin Klein suede Booties. 

What were you sporting this New Years?  Was it thrifted or found at a great price?
